  • Misleading text for shortcuts on file properties

    I am using SF 6.0.1.0.

    When I select an executable file from the filelist (to set its props), and then select the shortcut tab, the first checkbox is named ''Create shortcut in Start Menu".

    I think this text is misleading. As stated (correctly) in the online help, the shortcut is inserted into the program folder (Start menu -> Programs -> %SCFolderTitle%), but NOT into the Start Menu.

    Hayo

    Re: Misleading text for shortcuts on file properties

    "Create shortcut in Start menu" is an abbreviation...it's actually pretty common for the "programs folder" part to be understood when you're talking about program shortcuts in the Start menu.

    In any case, so long as the documentation is correct, I don't personally see anything wrong with this. (Technically, it is in the Start menu...just not right in the "Start menu" folder.)

    (Please don't encourage our GUI designers to use longer labels...referring to things like "check this box to create a shortcut in the Start menu Programs folder" in the documentation is a real PITA.) [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
